 Well-Done November 16, 2012 By David V. (Elysburg, PA) See All My Reviews "I purchased this CD in pursuit of the Boieldieu selection. I was very pleased to receive the other harp selections on this CD. Each piece is very well-done. The music is light and played masterfully. The Boieldieu harp concerto was all I expected it to be. The harp brings out a very dainty expression and also seems to breathe an exquisitely intricate melody to each of the pieces of the recording. I had not listened to the harp much, and when I heard the melody on public radio not too long ago, I was intrigued. I am very pleased I made the purchase and recommend it." Report Abuse
